Does Trump's infrastructure plan include building hundreds of greenhouse-free nuclear power plants?

    Trump is planning a gigantic investment in infrastructure. I hope it includes at least 200 brand-new greenhouse-free nuclear power plants.

    Trump should cancel any and all federal government spending on windmills and solar power (let the states handle those) and devote those monies to building at least 200 > 400 MW, greenhouse-free nuclear power plants in all 50 states. That would massively increase our non-fossil fuel baseload energy production capabilities and put a lot of people to work. It would effectively make the United States free of Mid-East oil, too.

    Probably won't happen but hey, one can always hope.

    So federal programs of corporate welfare for nuclear power, but not for renewable sources?

    Trump will invest in whatever infrastructure profits him personally.

    What is the ratio of energy produced to that consumed by their lifecycle?

    We don't know. Nobody had ever seen any details of any of his plans.
